Hi, I like what you got going on here. That said, I started a page for Technical Rescue, all aspects; Rope, Swiftwater, collapse, confined space, etc...

Dave, what aspect of Tech Rescue are you looking for? TEEX (College Station, TX) will teach just about everything. Don't know if traveling to Central Texas would be an option for you.

Hello my name is Matias Salcedo, my e-mail is, I tell them that I am a Volunteer Firefighter Villa Maria in Argentina (and forgiveness for the google translation is not the best for this, jejeje) and I by the department of my rope rescue headquarters and the fire department in the province of Cordoba, I am interested in receiving information on rescue techniques and wells in height. Also if one of you tubiese training manuals and training equipment RITs be extremely useful. Of course if I can be useful as you need them here I am at your disposal, I do not think I can have better information, but good for you that you need here I am.
A clear whether some time to come here (for example, are now running the Dakard), invite you to eat a delicious roast beef with Argentine good.
A giant greeting and we will be communicating.

Hola mi nombre es Matias Salcedo, mi e-mail es, les cuento que soy Bombero Voluntario de Villa Maria en Argentina (y perdon por la traducción el google no es lo mejor para esto, jejeje), y estoy a cargo del departamento de rescate con cuerdas de mi cuartel, y del departamento de incendio en la provincia de Córdoba, me interesaría recibir información sobre tecnicas de rescate en pozos y en altura.
Tambien si uno de ustedes tubiese manuales de formación y entrenamiento de los equipos RITs seria de muchisima utilidad. Por supuesto si les puedo ser de utilidad en lo que a ustedes les haga falta estoy aqui a su entera disposición, no creo que yo pueda tener mejor información que ustedes pero bueno para los que le haga falta aqui estoy.
A y claro si algunas vez vienen para aqui (ahora por ejemplo están corriendo el Dakard), los invito a comer un rico asado con carne argentina de la buena.
Un saludo gigante y nos estariamos comunicando.
